About the Event
Ladies as I was thinking of Black History Month (when I first posted this), I did some research on how African American travelers made a difference in the travel industry. I came across some interesting articles --> 5 African American Pioneers Who Changed Travel https://navan.com/blog/black-history-month-pioneers-changed-travel Before the Green Book, These Resorts Offered Hidden Safe Havens for Black Americans https://www.history.com/news/green-book-black-travel-resorts-jim-crow
Ladies, I would love to represent these pioneers in the two articles above at the parade because they gave a sense of freedom during their struggle in this country in the early 20th century and contributed their travel business ideas to service African Americans to be able to enjoy their lives and vacations. Today, African Americans can enjoy all the resorts and destinations of the country and beyond thanks to so many civil rights activists paving the way. One of the Parade themes this year is True Identity=True Freedom.
So, I am asking for a count of volunteers that will commit to honoring them in the Juneteenth Parade also representing Girls Trip Travel Group to continue on their legacy of traveling and enjoying vacations.

Girls Trip Travel Group plans to have a car in the parade as well as a walking group (tentatively 1.5 miles). More details to come as it is still early but they do have the cost of the parade up on their website. If you would like to participate in the parade please click the JOIN button. We are redesigning our shirts for the parade. We will let you know what that price will be in the spring so you will have time to purchase your Girls Trip Travel Group T-shirts in time for the parade and to wear on future events and trips.
